  • is it locked?

    • Locked to Optus network.

    • Arent all prepaid phones locked?

      • I heard Nexus S is not locked on Vodafone.

  • find someone on optus prepaid who normally buys recharges to get the phone for you and save $30 :)

  • So.. Its like paying 79 for this phone essentially.

    • Good for the existing optus prepaid users. You can use the recharge credit on your existing optus prepaid account (or your friend's optus prepaid account).

  • what's the cheapest way to activate the sim once so that the phone can be unlocked for free after 60 days? does the starter sim in $71 optus deal come with any credit?

    optus has $10 connect 4 less with 90 days expiry = $71 + $10 = $81. the $49 + $30 deal is better?

    Component pricing is deceptive and illegal in Australia since 2009.
    Please put true price.

      You can sue Target if you like. We are talking about bargain here.

      Anyway, I put the total transaction cost $79 in the title. In case someone cannot do the math: 49+30=79.

    • Wow! So people do not believe advertising should respect consumer protection laws?
      You need to draw the line somewhere or we end up like the US where advertised prices on phone plans or air tickets mean almost nothing. Thanks Barry for putting the full price prominently.

  • Not a bad price, though paying for $30 credit with Optus's crappy rates is like paying $10 elsewhere. I'd just wait 6months and unlock the phone for free IMO. Still not a bad deal though.

  • I think these are usually $79 so basically you get the $30 credit for free.

    OK phone - very slow at start up and small for people with large fingers, but can be easily unlocked. For the money though, this is a great deal.
